Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowksi's contract becomes fully guaranteed
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/6/15) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's contract for $4.75 million in 2015 base salary and $250,000 in workout bonuses became fully guaranteed Friday, according to CBSSports.com's Joel Corry.
Gronkowski caught 82 passes for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns in the 2014 regular season. In five seasons, Gronkowski has 308 catches for 4,379 yards and 54 touchdowns in just 65 games for New England. He is under contract through 2019, when he is scheduled to have a base salary of $9 million.
Gronkowski family baffled at Seahawks final play call
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/2/15) Rob Gronkowski's family obviously wanted the Patriots to win Super Bowl XLIX.
But following Seattle's controversial play call — in which Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw an interception instead of Seattle running the ball with Marshawn Lynch — the Gronkowski admitted being a bit confused as to what just happened, according to The Buffalo News.
“I couldn’t believe they were throwing it!” Gronkowski's father Gordy Gronkowski said. “You got Beast Mode back there and you don’t go Beast Mode in that situation?
“What was he thinking?”
Said brother and former NFL fullback Chris Gronkowski: “I have no idea why you would ever call that in a million years, especially when you have Marshawn Lynch on your team.”
Rob Gronkowski finished the Super Bowl with six catches for 68 yards and a touchdown.
Patriots' Rob Gronkowski finds the end zone
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/1/15) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski found the end zone during Super Bowl 49.
Gronkowski hauled in six balls for 68 yards during the contest. He finished second on the club in receiving yards. While it wound up being a mild game for Gronkowski, he would not be kept out of the end zone. In the second quarter, he hauled in a 22 yard touchdown from Tom Brady. Gronkowski was matched up against the linebacker in coverage, and just blew right past him for the catch.

|Rob Gronkowski is back where he belongs as the No. 1 Fantasy tight end entering this season, and he should be able to dominate the position in 2015 even with Tom Brady suspended for the first four games of the year. Gronkowski appears to be over the forearm, back and knee injuries that have plagued him in recent years after he finished with 82 catches for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, and we hope he can overcome having backup Jimmy Garoppolo start while Brady is out. Last year, he was 30 Fantasy points better than the No. 2 tight end, Antonio Gates, and he should again blow away the field, barring an injury or a bad start from the quarterback mess with Brady now out. He now has four seasons for with double digits in touchdowns and two with over 1,100 receiving yards and at least 80 catches. We still consider Gronkowski a first-round pick in the majority of leagues even without Brady to open the season. He is clearly the best tight end in the NFL, and he should once again post dominant stats this season.
